Thanks to reader Laura who passed on this interview with Jane Taylor where she shares a bit about what it’s like to design hats for the Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex (Hello)

Fabienne Delvigne created five stunning hats for the House of Guerlain for the launch of their new perfume, La Petite Robe Noire (Little Black Dress)

While putting together the inventory of Queen Elizabeth’s green hats this week, I discovered two blue hats I had previously missed. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see them.

Another great video of the now famous exhibition on the Queen’s fashion on display now at Buckingham Palace. Have any of you been to see it yet?

  1. Thanks HatQueen. There are some great articles and hats on here. My favourites are the Fabienne Delvigne hats for the House of Guerlain. I agree with the other readers about how they remind me so much of Audrey Hepburn’s black wide-brimmed hat, which she too wore with an LBD, in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. I liked Princess Tsuguko’s hat, which was simple and summery. I didn’t like the Sarah, Duchess of York calot, because I thought it seemed to be a bit small and worn too far back. The Jane Taylor interview was most enlightening. As was the Princess Tatiana of Greece interview. I am amazed that she is kind enough to work in a soup kitchen. She looks so beautiful in the Greek corsage tiara. I laughed at the quote by former King of Greece George II, who said that “the most important tool for a Greek king is a suitcase.”

  2. I love each and every one of the Fabienne Delvigne black hats.They remind me so much of Audrey Hepburn’s black wide-brimmed hat, which she too wore with an LBD, in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Classic!

  3. Those black hats are “to die for!” It was interesting that the Countess of Wessex gives free rein to Jane Taylor for her Ascot hats. Now we know who to give glory or blame to for the outcome! I did not like most of Princess Beatrice’ s hats except the one she wore to the Christening looked really nice. I haven’t watched the Versailles documentary yet!

  4. Hello HatQueen, I would respectfully point out that “infamous” does not mean ‘most famous’ or ‘famous-plus’, rather it has a very negative meaning: Wicked, evil, well-known for some bad quality or deed. An infamous person has a terrible reputation.

    I’m sure this isn’t what you meant.

    Kinds regards,
    Sandra
